Mayor Samantha Paradis

Belfast Free Library Abbott Room, 106 High St. Belfast Mayor Samantha Paradis speaks on “My Goals as Mayor and Climate Activist,” sponsored by the Old Professor’s Bookshop. Paradis will address what it means to be a climate activist, sharing stories from her work at the Global Climate Action Summit, and with state NGOs, the Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments, and the City Climate Change Committee.

Paradis recently returned from a speaking invitation at the Clinton Global Initiative University held at the University of Chicago, according to a press release. Her biography for the event says, "Under her leadership, the city has taken significant strides in addressing climate change, including transitioning to 90-percent solar energy for municipal electricity use, creating a city climate change committee to study the effects of sea level rise, and installing free public electric vehicle chargers."
